I know I'll come off as insensitive here....but I just don't get it....(likely because I love food).
Doesn't she have mirrors in her house? Can't she see that she's a walking skeleton? I saw an interview with her just a few days ago, and to me,
it doesn't seem that she wants to get over this, and that is what is dooming her (i.e. her refusal to go to another center, etc.). Sad as it
is...she's doomed herself...
Then again, I'm not one to consider addictions (including addictive behaviors) a "disease" because they've brought it on themselves... Even
personal involvement with obesity being treated as a "disease"... It isn't....but there are medical factors that can lead to it. For example, my
fiance' would constantly gain weight, even though she'd eat far less, and far less often than me...so obviously, it wasn't what she ate, or how
much, it was how her body was storing fat...until it took surgery to make her healthy, and on the road to being fit...
All this woman needs to do is start eating food, and quit sticking her finger down her throat....hardly seems like a "disease" to me....then again,
I will profess ignorance at not having a personal experience or friend with it...
